#7dayfloatjourney

Have you heard about floating, AKA: Sensory Deprivation?

About nine months ago I started working at a float center in Jacksonville, FL called H2Om Float. They contacted me after seeing me online and before I knew it I was part-time manager which allowed me to FINALLY leave the dental world and for those that know me well, they know how ready I was to leave the dental world. No need to focus on that tho, bye-bye dentures and toothaches!

I didn't know anything about floating prior to coming to this place so I did a ton of research and quickly got on board. I was so excited to be a part of something that can help so many and see how this therapy would be beneficial for my body pains as well as my mind. I read blog after blog, news articles and more. Most of it painted floating in a positive light with the exception here and there, mostly those who were claustrophobic or just simply didn't allow themselves enough to relax...

For those that don't know what floating is we will go over a brief summary.. you have a tank with about 10-12 inches of water, each one filled with about 800-1,000 pounds of epsom salt. The water is kept at skin temperature and you automatically float, much like in the dead sea. Laying in the tank you have cut off all of your senses-
  • Sight (No light)
  • Hearing (Soundproof)
  • Touch (Water is same temp as you)
  • Taste (Well, there's no eating during the float..lol)
  • Smell (There is no smell to the salt)
Cutting off all the senses like this in basically a gravity-free environment allows both your mind and your body to focus on EVERYTHING else but gravity. It helps athletes post-workout, increases circulation, helps with aches and pains including those associated with fibromyalgia and arthritis, and is amazing therapy for ADD, ADHD, insomnia and more. You take a shower, jump in the tank and float in the dark for generally an hour and just simply let the stress, pain and worry "float" away as well...

Last week me and the other manager discussed doing a 7 day float journal... floating an hour each day and shooting a little vlog before and after each float. She knows how much I blog, vlog and more, lol, so this sounded right up my alley, especially since I LOVE floating! I usually float about once a week so 7 days in a row would be a big difference.

Today was my third day and I can tell such a difference in my body and creative direction. I've been working on various projects all day long and so focused. I am loving it. I have had more energy and I am not in as much pain as I usually am. What will four more days of floating will do for me!
If you get a chance check out my blogs on YouTube and a follow would mean a lot, more importantly tho look into floating in your area, wherever that may be, and try it out. Float at least 2-3 times and see how it works for you, you may be surprised 💙

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event

My whole life changed (for maybe the billionth time) on November 3, 2017.

I had watched my son graduate from his Army AIT training the day before and traveled back from SC only to wake up with my entire face so swollen it looked as though I could burst at any moment.. the pain was real. I had done some blood work at the docs a few weeks earlier and we had not gotten the results so my husband drove me straight to the doc that day to demand some answers. I was told a few tests needed to be redone but the one thing she knew for sure is no more gluten... I blogged about it here. Before you ask, no I have not found out if it's Celiac, Lupus or anything else, even though the doctor seemed concerned about Celiac. Insurance issues. Yay life...
The last year has been a huge journey. Figuring out that EVERY little thing matters. Cross-contamination is real (if you don't change your gloves I will have a reaction), almost everything has gluten in it from shampoo to sausage and you often f…

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage #VoxBox

*This is a sponsored blog from Garnier Nutrisse and Influenster as I received this product to test for free

So recently I was selected to receive a new #VoxBox from Influenster of a beautiful light brown (#630 Toffee Nut) hair dye from Garnier Nutrisse. I have used this brand a few times in the past so I really had no worries with trying out this new one. I set up my phone and did my first "unboxing" video which was kinda fun and something I think I may do more of.



Inside were:



After mixing them as instructed I kept the dye on for the recommended time of 30 minutes in going from a dark blonde color to this light brown. I must admit I was a little worried the color would properly cover my head as I was applying; the bottle felt so light but I ended up with just a little more than enough and I still applied that to be sure. My hair as you can see is just at my neck length so I imagine if it was longer than shoulder length you'd be better off grabbing two boxes to be sure. …
